Nothing special. We had a calzone and granita ahead of Stromboli climb. Both were ok. Only one toilet with a huge queue. Friendly waiter.

It was really nice to have a late lunch at this restaurant. Very tasty and fresh fish, especially "tagliata di tonno" presented in a very posh way. Stefania, the lady that was looking after us, was very lovely, she was suggesting what to eat and her service was outstanding, it's not easy to find a waiter with so much knowlwdge... More

Stopped here for a drink and to take the weight off our feet and watch the world go by. Good service, cold pop and hot coffee, reasonably priced with a few tables of locals doing the same....lovely.

We wanted a quick meal before an evening boat trip, and that's what we got. Food was Ok, service too, but we've only rated it average here as it wasn't great value, sorry!

The dough for the pizza was fresh and pulled out to a lovely crispy thin base and covered to the edges with high quality toppings. The veg on the topping was obviously fresh and well seasoned and was in exactly the right quanitity. I... More

You might not think you go to a restaurant when eating in Il Malandrino in Stromboli, it is located close to Stromboli dock and they have many tables distributed in a terrace. Sights and location are fine, but that´s all. We ate penne Bolognese. Large course where 2 people can eat, but not very good quality of the sauce and... More

It's a trap ! Worst place I've ever eaten at... If you are a tourist, they will serve you a different plate than what they serve for Italians. The food looked was probably microwaved, and the portion would have been good for a 5-year old, but not for an adult ! It was still expensive, and the funny thing is... More

We had a quick pizza there, margarita with added garlic. Really good from wood oven. The main chef came out to say hi. Basic but really good.

Menu is basic, but having had the lasagna on Panarea, the pizza on Stromboli was 200% better. Coffee was also excellent. They also serve ice cream and cake. Good for families with hungry teenagers
